Open Calls

ON DISPLAY no.2 | LAKE Studios Berlin

Deadline for applications: 7 July 2022

Dance & Performance Video Documentation Residency hosted by LAKE Studios Berlin:

November 6 – December 3, 2022

More information & application form.

Lake Studios Berlin is pleased to announce the continuation of our dance documentation residency – ON DISPLAY.  The aim of this residency project is to give selected choreographers the opportunity to create a high-quality video documentation of a finished dance work.  The choreographer will be supported throughout the filming and editing process by a professional team as well as be able to use the professional video and lighting equipment available at LAKE Studios. Preparations of 2 weeks will precede the filming week, and the last week of the residency will be used for editing and post production. 

Please note that the purpose of the residency is not to document an artistic process or create an “dance film”, but rather to create a high quality documentation of a finished dance performance which the applicant can use to submit to festivals, funding structures, or simply to share the work when a performance is not possible.

What we can offer:

We can offer 4 selected projects payments of 2500€ for the choreographer as well as 500€ per week per collaborator/performer (dancer, musician, etc.) as support to devote themselves to the entire process which runs for 4 weeks (6.11.2022 or 3.12.2022). We can also offer a double room in the LAKE Studios residency apartment for the entire working period. Travel costs within Germany for up to 200€ per person can be reimbursed.

Application requirements*:

  • application form (available on our website) including 2 work samples & full length simple registration of the piece that you wish to document
  • CV
  • The application can be made in English or German

Application form available here.

*Note: We will only select participants who are based in Germany as we would like to encourage working locally as much as possible.

We will inform you of the selection results by 20.07.2022
